"When talking about music with people, for saying things like "this beat
is taken from ..." i often get replys like: "yeah maybe, but i like it
anyways." If there wouldn't be these "but, anyways" i'd be fine with it.
We're all stuck in the 18th century mentally. In the Middle Ages
"componere" still had the original meaning of "to enclose".
It was taken for granted to derive new chorales from older ones. Usually
parts of such compounds were composed but not completely new works.
Whole works were crafted (=facere) which is a facile idea of
mechanic humility, something we should care about."
The Plastic Jazz Orchestra was formed by Bernd Burnson in late 2006 as
an ensemble electronique for modern music. Tragically Bernd Burnson
passed away in summer 2007 and left behind a bunch of young people
determined to create something completely different, something new in
terms of musical expression. So the tracks from '39°' by The Plastic Jazz Orchestra had never been compositions in their origins but handcrafted pieces of what we call music.
